president biden teamed up with new york mayor michael bloomberg today to push for new gun control laws. biden made an emotional appeal for action. >> for all those who say we shouldn't or couldn't ban high capacity magazines, i just ask them one question, think about newtown. think about newtown. think about how many of these children or teachers may be alive today had he had to reload three times as many times as he did. think about what happened out in where gabby giffords, my good friend, was shot and wounded. think about when that young man had to try to change the clip. had he only had a ten-round clip when he changed the clip and fumbled and had it knocked out of his hand, how many more people would have been alive? and tell me how it violates anyone's constitutional right to be limited to a clip that holds ten rounds instead of 30, or in aurora a hundred? >> let's get more on the vice president's emotional appeal for new gun laws. susan candiotti with the speech, the backdrop of new york city, the mayor and involving a number of family members from the connecticut shooting. >> r

poor african-american voters since the last election. stricter photo id laws in pennsylvania and shortening the early -- taking away the early voting in sunday in florida. my colleague took him to task on that. let's listen to michael. >> how does priebus reconcile his approach and agreement with voter registration policies that many in the black community view as anti-black, racist. you can show up any time. it's what you say and what you do when you get there that matters most to people. >> priebus was asked about steel's criticism right there this morning by luke russert. he dodged the question. i think you will see the dodge. let's watch. >> what's your response to him? >> well, i'm not going to -- i'm not going to engage in an argument with michael. but, you know, the fact of the matter is you have to have the resources to be able to have an effective ground operation in minority communities. if you don't market and brand your party on a regular basis i think that you're going to continue to have problems. that's a big piece of what we're trying to do here. >> you know,

michael bloomberg announced he was moving forward with a law to forbid stores from publicly displaying cigarettes and other tobacco products because quote, such displays suggest that smoking is a normal activity and invite young people to experiment with tobacco. smoking is the number one cause of preventible death in the united states but is hiding merchandise the best way to combat the problem or is there another way the states are avoiding? according to the cdc, between 1998 and 2010, states in this country collected nearly $244 billion in cigarette taxes and settlement money from the case against big tobacco. yes, that is nearly one quarter of a trillion dollars. this year alone, the states will get nearly $26 billion. so that money is supposed to go to ending smoking, funding tobacco prevention programs, but it doesn't. of the $26 billion this year, about 1.8% is actually going to go towards prevention. the states use the rest for, well, a whole lot of other stuff. they obviously need the cash desperately. new york city will receive $625 million this year and has set aside $7.9 mi

guns sold in states with weak gun laws are all too often found crossing state lines and are used to commit crimes elsewhere. so we really need national leadership in washington if we're going to stop the scourge. thankfully, there has been some encouraging progress. for example, last week, the senate judiciary committee voted in favor of a number of >>s, including a measure to expand background checks to private gun sales, which is how some 40% of gun purchases in the nation are made. more than 6.5 million gun sales during 2012, alone. there is no question that if this becomes law, it will keep guns out of the hands of people who should not have them. it will reduce violent crime. it will save lives. we know that's true, because in states that already require background checks on private sales, the rate of women murdered by an intimate partner armed with a gun is 38% lower than in states that don't have such background checks. the rate of firearm suicide is 49% low peer. and the rate of firearm assaults, including attempted murders, is 17% lower. there's no doubt requiring backgr

that if this becomes law, it will keep guns out of the hands of people who should not have them. it will reduce violent crime. it will save lives. we know that's true because in states that already require background checks on private sales, the rate of women murdered by an intimate partner armed with a gun is 38% lower than in states that don't have such background checks. the rate of firearm assaults including attempted murders is 17% lower. so there's no doubt that requiring background checks for all gun sales saves lives and there's no doubt that the american people support it. the only question is whether congress will have the courage to do the right thing or whether they will allow more innocent people, including innocent children, to be gunned down. it has been 97 days since newtown. in that time, we estimate that more than 3,000 americans have been murdered with guns. almost none of the victims generated national headlines. but each murder was a tragedy for the victim's family and for the community. if congress does nothing, another 12,000 people will be murdered with guns this year alone. we
have cost us our soul when it comes to gun safety. the first permanent federal laws passed since newtown. gun safety advocates lost on every single one of them this bill is outrageous in light of the mass murder in newtown connecticut. the bill forces gun dealers to check for missing or stolen guns and bans efforts to change the definition of antique gun. and the bill keeps the justice department from closing inactive gun dealers giving life to zombie gun shops. and the nra must love this last one, the new law presents atf from using data collection to daughterdraw conclusion to gun crime. in essence see no evil, speak no evil, hear no evil. these gun measures could have come off the books at some point but they're president obama's signature away from becoming permanent. if i sound dispirited, this is on the heels of the democratic led decision not to push the assault gun ban. biden spent much of the speech defending the assault weapons ban of 1994 which has now expired. >> for all those who say we shouldn't and can't ban assault weapons, for all those who say that politics is t
budget, various ones have no chance of becoming law. is there any worry that the idea that republicans are putting forward that our budget balances, our budget balances, a very good sound bite that can work in mid-term elections. whereas you guys' isn't balanced until about 2040. is there any worry that the message could take hold and cause problems for you in the 2014 mid-terms? >> no, luke, for this reason -- the republican budget, the ryan budget balances on the backs of middle income taxpayers. it balances by violating our commitment to our seniors, through the voucher plan. by gutting important investments. in infrastructure, in science and research, in education. things that are important to power the economy. our focus has been on jobs first. let's get the economy in full gear. not put the brakes on it. which is what the republicans do. they've gotten austerity budget that according to the nonpartisan congressional budget office, will result in 750,000 fewer jobs bn i end of the year. so we say let's tackle the deficit in a smart way, get people back to work and reduce it over a
. this is a budget outline that will never be law. let's talk broadly about the ryan budget. is the ryan budget good or bad politics for republicans not named paul ryan? it seems to be good politics for paul ryan, it got him as the vice presidential nominee. is it good politics in general? >> it depends. it depends on where you're running and what districts. and it depends on how certain members of the republican party decide to change the messaging on this. we saw paul brown now making some trouble saying that the paul ryan budget isn't conservative enough. he's running for the senate in georgia. if he's going to say that the ryan budget doesn't cut enough and starts pulling people off of even the ryan budget, well, you know, that is going to be some very, very tricky politics for the republican party and something the democrats will use against them in places that are competitive. >> now, tricky politics, republicans no question on the ryan budget and budgeting in general. tricky politics on guns for democrats. now, the assault weapons ban stripped out of the broader senate bill, harry reid has ta
